Subject: Rights status of this?
What does "Permission to digitize granted by rights holder" actually mean? I am assuming that the rights holder to this actual physical work is long long dead. The only rights can be on the digital copies of the work. But how can the permission to digitise be given to by the rights holder to digital copies not yet born? Who actually owns the rights to these digital copies? If the Internet Archive digitised the work, doesn't it own the rights?
